We are delighted to announce an exciting new initiative. We have formed an alliance with PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, to develop an all-new trade show: Pharma EXPO will debut 2 – 5 November 2014 in Chicago.
Pharma EXPO will be held in conjunction with PMMI’s PACK EXPO, one of the world’s most respected and successful manufacturing and packaging events. Our new joint event will be held annually and take place in Chicago and Las Vegas on alternating years.
Pharma EXPO will present the opportunity to see and compare new and emerging technologies, processing and packaging equipment and other products and services that advance the pharma manufacturing industry. Seminars and mini-sessions planned will also deliver education and information specific to the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. All of this, together with Pharma EXPO’s proximity to PACK EXPO will make the new event the one show you will want to visit each year.
As like-minded, not-for-profit associations with related missions, ISPE and PMMI share a commitment to advance the manufacturing industry. ISPE and PMMI will collaborate in the planning, promotion and execution of Pharma EXPO. The event will be a new platform for educational sessions for pharmaceutical development, manufacturing, packaging, supply chain and other professionals working throughout the product lifecycle. By aligning the new event with PACK EXPO, we anticipate exciting opportunities for member education and networking, as well as a new opportunity for our supplier members and exhibitors.
This new initiative is anticipated to provide many additional benefits to ISPE Members, Communities of Practice (COPs), Affiliates and Chapters and the global industry we serve. We envision that this new program will offer members and their companies new opportunities for education, networking and for viewing and comparing the latest in world-class equipment and technology.
